Larry King Hospitalized After Suffering Another Heart Attack
Larry King is currently recovering after suffering a heart attack.
TMZ reports that 85-year-old King went into cardiac arrest last Thursday after having a heart attack. He was reportedly on his way to his doctor for an angiogram, but, was suffering from shortness of breath, and he was taken to the hospital where an angioplasty was performed.
He is reported to have received several stents after it was discovered that an artery had collapsed.
A source revelaed to PEOPLE magazine that, “He is okay right now.”
He is currently in the cardiac intensive care, scheduled to be released on Monday.
This is not the first heart attack that King has had. He suffers from heart disease and had a big heart attack back in 1987, where he had a quintuple-bypass surgery. Back in 2017, he also had surgery to remove a tumor from his lungs after revealing that he had been diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer.
A rep for King has not yet commented.
